Di Garling Blog!!! Need I say more?  Di is here at The Scrapbook Diaries with her debut kit, Be Yourself! And she lives up to all the hype! This colorful layout is filled with texture and color making it a fabulous layout for all things feminine and pretty!

As this was my first look in to Di’s colorful world, I had a great time! Popping colors and textures make her creation a one of a kind masterpiece. Only wish I lived in Australia so I could take some classes from her direct! OK I might also want to live in Australia because I think it would be a really cool place to live (the accents, those views, my lovely internet friends… I could go on but I am digressing as usual).

Anyway… Dis fabulous – Be Yourself

Why do I even bother with intros? I should just post pictures – I think they speak way better than I do.

The kit is packed with some lovely pieces. From papers to flowers… I almost forgot the 2Crafty chippies. How could I do that? As you may know Di is on the 2Crafty Design Team. For good reason. she rocks the chipboard! And the 2Crafty rocks in general! Some fabulously detailed pieces enhance this layout in all the right ways! You’ll get full access to Di’s how-to tutorial when you purchase the kit.

Di uses several mediums.  We included the Old Rose Chalk Edger in the kit as the colors blends so many elements together but left the others as an additional bundle. The “Plus” kit includes basic kit plus the two greens for her greens… Pretty Peridot Silks Paint and I’m Not Limon Inklingz Watercolor. In addition we have two pink mists… Chateau Rose from Lindy’s Stamp Gang and Burnt Red Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels. See product description for all details.

With an added sheet of paper, a pack of chipboard and some flowers, I made a bonus sample showing how you can use your left over pieces and make a complete second page without issue…

Might have been a little over exposed on my pic but hopefully you get the idea. Just a great mix of pinks, peaches and green!  Love it and hop you do too!

Thanks Di – love the layout and tutorial. Can’t wait to see what you bring us next! Thank you!

Coming…. more 2Crafty chipboards being added daily. I can’t go so long between orders – just too much to post! I also received a new shipment of ScrapFx and Blue Fern Studios. ScrapFX is loaded with baby goodness (perfect for the Vintage Baby line from Maja Design). Blue Fern – great pieces and plenty more Deja Vu papers! I for one can not get enough of that collection. Without doubt you will be seeing it in a faster kit (or two – maybe even three).

New kits… Still lots planned and in the works. Next kit… Gerry van Gent, Layering goddess! Also have Elena Tretiakova and Nadia Cannizzo coming soon.

Thanks for stopping in,
